NIOSH Offers Resources for Health Care Workers Administering Vaccines 

Health care workers who are exposed to needles, for example, while administering vaccines, are at risk of sharps injury and exposure to bloodborne pathogens. NIOSH and our partners have many resources on how to keep health care workers safe. This includes information on how to reduce sharps injuries and what to do if you have a sharps injury.

We hope the resources below are useful. We encourage you to share this information with other health care personnel at risk for sharps injuries.
